COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Launched on December 26th 1989 @ 9% abv. Abv reduced from 9% to 8.5% in 2003.
The particular character and the unique taste of "Delirium Tremens" result from the use of three different kinds of yeast. Its very original packing, which resembles cologne ceramics, and the colourful label contribute to its success.
In 1997, Stuart A. Kallen nominated Delirium Tremens as "best beer in the world". A gold medal during the "world beer championships" in Chicago (1998) confirmed that worldwide recognition.

750 mL bottle. Yellow amber with champagne bubbles and a big fluffy white head. Aroma of banana, orange, and yeast. Bright lively palate. Tastes of honey and fruit with a bready slightly alcoholic finish. Pretty good.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 Smells fairly unpleasant. Somewhat offensive name for a beer. Tastes too carbonated. The taste of fizz is too prevalent. Not much beneath it.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2007
750 ml. Pours a fluffed, fanatical white head. Smells of affluent grains, tiny yeast, and trouble. Very typical of the Belgian Strongs. Mouthfeel is encompassing yet sinister with balanced pepper in the back. This beer never fails to please.

If you need to convince someone of the amazing flavor and beauty of a Belgian Strong Ale, point them to the Delirium. This beer is really fantastic, nice floral notes, good finish, refreshing. Perfect

bryandhargrave (165) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2007
bottle in the picture.... corked. neato. sweet smell, highly carbonated, big white head on top of a dark yellow body with lots of sediment. very smooth taste with a slight zing of co2 just as you open you mouth after the swallow.

Had this before, but now for a rating...Smell is great, lots of sweetness.....Big-Medium head, lacing is pretty good- over average....light golden colour....VERY drinkable, smooth, delicous, ...is this really 8.5?? Smell of honey, caramelized light hops, some maple.... a joy to drink!
